The Trouble With Temptation (Second Service #3) [Ty & Morgan] by Adrienne Bell

Another action pact yet sweet and romantic novella in the Second Service series which I think ends after this one (In Adrienne's website it's considered a trilogy so...). I loved both Ty and Morgan. Ty was more easy going and fun than both Alex and John (the MC in the previous installments) and Morgan was an interesting character with different kind of hobbies but mostly a strong woman who can take care of herself if she didn't tend to find more trouble that ANYONE can handle :D 

Morgan and her brother own a club together. While it was both their dream it turns out the way her brother handles things the club became more of "his thing" than hers, but worse, he started hanging out with dangerous guys and things aren't adding up as they should in the books which leads Morgan to suspect that they deal with illegal money making. Ty has been tracking the Russian mob for a while now and as it seems his last lead is Morgan's club where he comes as an undercover to play bartender. 

While both are attracted to one another they have their own reasons to not act on them though things does start to get more friendly between them. Saving her ass from those scary guys add a few bonuses to what Morgan thinks of him. Sadly, Ty couldn't save her enough to NOT get involved with those mobsters who decided they rather have her dead than annoyingly asking the wrong questions. 

Taking down a mobster is something Ty has no problem doing but now that he feels a connection to Morgan it's hard for him to pick the right choice of HOW to do it. Morgan is determined to help the best she can which is exactly what scares Ty the most. But when it's all said and done they both do what they feel like they have to do to protect one another.

Really enjoyed this one. Like the previous ones it's very fluid and fun read. The romance is fast building but it's understandable with all the drama and the pressure the MC deal with. I think I love the first one the best, but this is a close second. 

Recommended! Each one in the series can be read as a stand alone though it can made more sense reading them in the right order. 

I have two more short novellas by Adrienne in my reading list - One Lucky Night and Second Chances, both published under the name "One Lucky Night". I'm not sure when I'll find my time to read it but since I really enjoy Adrienne's writing it would probably be soon and I'll sure be monitoring her next releases. 

Additional Details: Kindle Ebook, 168 pages, 31 October 2014 / On GoodReads
Second Service is a Contemporary Romance series by Adrienne Bell.
There are 3 short novellas in the series (of about ~150 pages) each tells the HEA of one of three men - Alex, John and Ty - who used to serve in the same Navy Seal Team. The 4th and final short novella in the series is of Alex's cousin and joins all three couples in a final shot and another short romance.

Each short novella is action packed but also funny and very engaging. While the love flourishes quite quickly when everything that's going on it's really fitting. 

The main characters feel genuine, the men tough but human and VERY sexy and the woman are sweet and lovable, very believable in their traits and also in the fact that they are no beauty queens. Also, while the women deal with terror they are NOT used to, they endure it in their own way. Even when shedding tears they show toughness and capable of handling things on their own. 

Recommended! [ Though I should say that I didn't really like the ending novella of Holly and Michael. ]
